The route Androsace is recommanded for people who measure at least 1m40. The descent is the same for both routes.

To climb the Via Ferrata, you’ll need a helmet, harness and lanyards. You have to use your own equipment (including traditional lanyards). Gloves must be worn for hygienic reasons.

WARNING : for security reasons, the sets are only intended for people who have a weight between 50kg-100kg.

Hiring a guide is not essential. However, if you do not have extensive experience in this sport, they charge by the day, in the same way as on guided climbing trips.

The two routes are equipped with an « aéroligne » lifeline safety system which prevents improper usage and restricts the risks for users.

How to get there :
From the top station of « Le Jumbo » cable car if you come from Verbier. From Nendaz, take the Siviez-Tortin chairlift and then the Tortin-Gentianes cable car.

The Via Ferrata is free to use. Only the ski lifts have to be paid for with the 4 Vallées pass. The lifts are free for both VIP Pass and Altitude pass holders.
